I have wanted to start a blog for a long time. I can even say that I started a couple of them – but they didn't last. I couldn't quite pull it together in a consistent fashion. This time I hope that won’t be the case. Previously, I had all these grand ideas about me starting a blog, gaining readers, developing a following and somehow making a little extra money as a result. I did plenty of research in preparation for this venture and even set up a paid website to make it happen. But I soon realized that the direction I was taking just wasn't working for me.
Fast forward to today. I started selling on Ebay in May of this year. I’m still learning , but I enjoy the challenge of it all; and that alone gives me something to write about. As long as I keep selling – there’s gonna be something to write about. All of my previous research told me that in order to be a successful blogger, you really had to do it for the right reasons. You have to be passionate about what your blog had to offer. That’s part of the reason that I failed at it. I was trying to create passion – which was all wrong. So, you might ask, am I passionate about selling on Ebay? Not yet. I think passionate is a pretty strong word and I’m not sure I am there yet. Do I enjoy it? Sure. Do I like telling people about it? Yep. If those two things are part of the criteria, then maybe I am well on my way to being passionate. Give me a little time, I’ll get there. Meanwhile, I am looking forward to making this one stick.
